Rude and apathetic staff was the worst part. Seemed like we were inconvenience. We arrived at night and had to walk past a drug addiction shelter from the metro - stared down -bad location at night. Also the dorms are only separated from common areas by windows so the noise levels are quite loud. Front door is secure but anyone can walk into your dorm. Good hot showers and really clean washrooms. Good breakfast. Overall strange vibe for a hostel - weirdest hostel "etiquette" I have ever seen.
Pretty hostel with different "eco" stuff like recycling and "Save electricity!" posters. Kitchen is ok, they have everything to cook. Free breakfast is very nice! Staff is speaking english well. But the room was incredibly cold, with only one small window to the inner yard and even the sun cannot make it warmer. Also, the water in the toilets was cold too.
Really liked this hostel. Not only it was a lot cheaper than others but it was very well located and the facilities were simple but efficient. Staff were incredibly helpful. Would definitely go back!!!
Shower in this hostel supplies plenty of hot water, very good for cold season. But the room was too cold(no A/C facility)
The staff was very nice and helpful! The Bathroom smelled and had no light and only one was working, the others were out of order.
Great hostel for the price. A little out of the centre but still only a 15-20 minute walk. Great wifi in the communal area but a little weak in the dorms. Well-equipped kitchen and very clean bathrooms. Very friendly staff.
DO NOT BOOK TOURS THROUGH THIS HOSTEL. Our tour was cancelled twice (and we only found out the night before the tour, so we were unable to plan anything else), and we ended up not going on any tour at all. We ended up not seeing anything outside of Santiago even though we were there for close to a week. I can't even start to describe how extremely disappointed we were. Furthermore they didn't clean our dorm the whole time we stayed.

Didn't enjoy my stay here. Was planning to stay a few nights more, but left after one day.
Very friendly and helpful staff. It's a bit chilly because no centralized heating. I'm sure this wouldn't be a problem in spring or summer. Nice, full breakfast of cereal, fruits and bread. The shower was great! Especially after being at a previous hostel where it dripped water out. I also like that they are eco friendly and have info about saving the environment in kitchen area

A little away from tourist centre. Clean. Quiet. Friendly staff. Good wifi. Prices for the cheapest dorm changes. Maybe there is a quota system. Great value if you get the cheapest price.
Good eco-practices--they recycle everything. But it was empty & lacked atmosphere. I thought the cheap dorm would be full b/c the cheap rate sold out on HW. But it wasn't--they book the same bed at 2 rates, the lowest only online & for the 1st few takers. The higher rate is 50% higher--too much--& this is why the hostel was empty. My next hostel was packed so it wasn't b/c of the low season. Has potential to connect eco-conscious travelers, but they should offer a consistent, fair price.
